TUNGSTÈNE Technology was used on MH17 crash investigation

TUNGSTÈNE Technology was used on MH17 crash investigation. The American blog www.armscontrolwonk.com published a full analysis made by a team from the Middlebury Institute’s James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS). The researchers have determined that images the Russian government published as part of its investigation into the downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 over Ukraine two years ago have been “significantly modified or altered”. Jeffrey Lewis, Melissa Hanham, Catherine Dill and Dave Schmerler of CNS analyzed the images using Tungstène, a suite of forensic software that is used in the InVID project for detecting alterations to images, that was provided by an anonymous donor (MIIS). The full review is available here. Furthermore, this published analysis was also covered by The New York Times
